Sanders Comes Out Against Charter Schools

Everyone knows that the Clintons have been long-time supporters of charter schools and corporate education "reform."

Those who have been waiting for Bernie Sanders to take a public position on corporate welfare charter reform schools, wait no longer.  From Haymarket, NH on Jan. 3:

"I'm not in favor of privately-run charter schools," Sanders said to applause at the Jan. 3 event. "If we are going to have a strong democracy and be competitive globally, we need the best educated people in the world. And I believe in public education. I went to public schools my whole life. I think rather than give tax breaks to billionaires, I think we invest in teachers and we invest in public education."
